The question is...... How are they uploading them to the Feature Films section without having to ask for them to be moved here in the first place! Can someone tell me how?!?!

I noticed this just once after someone asked if a particular film was PD no one answered their question. This person asked in the forums too. Then the film got uploaded only to be removed because it was copyrighted. Could it be the same person? Seems like maybe if it's the same person that person is frustrated.

Are any of the films of Bill D. Courtney PD? I just noticed about 4 or 5 of them popped up here this morning. I'm doubting any of them are in the public domain. Someone needs to check em and if they are under copyright see who's been uploading them. http://www.archive.org/details/Beast_of_Blood

The Flesh Eaters. Just curious about this one because I think it is distributed by Something Weird Video. It looks like a film that falls into the "where there's smoke there's fire" category.

Released 1964 (IMDB)
Copyright registration: 1966 (30 months after publication)
Date in (valid) notice 1962
Renewed 1990.

The renewal date is correct. I guess somebody can argue it was not registered promptly...but that is no criteria for PD on this site.

His name was credited on the pages next to the titles. I think he's also listed as producer on each page.
